Re: access rights mechanism for the users with Apache + SVN

With write access you can do add/delete operations. In order to have better control over repository you can have directory based access as well.i.e say if you repository is
Under dump if u have two directories namely
prod & test
you can provide root access to admin and access to prod/test as per the requirement and hence can avoid misuse of code/data.

You need to break down the access further in the svnaccessfile

admin = rw

user1 = rw

 user2 = rw

Hope this helps !!

 I am using Apache for Subversion with Apache Loadable Modules.
 I have configured a "Basic" authentication and have defined AuthUserFile
created with the htpasswd utility.
 Also, per directory access is defined with AuthzSVNAccessFile .

 In our project, we require that users have read, write, add, delete rights
as per their Role and Responsibility in the project.
 But with AuthzSVNAccessFile , I can assign read, write rights only, there
is no add and delete rights separation.
 Whether "write" means add, delete and write ?
 If yes, then how do I achieve more finely defined access rights mechanism
for the users? (read, write, add,delete)

 Thanks in advance.
